We all remember the controversial TIME magazine cover that sparked outrage and support. Well now there are talks about doing a reality television show about "extreme" parenting.
The show wouldn't focus just on extended breastfeeding, but would cover all forms of "extreme" and "nontraditional" parenting practices. Will bringing such attention to those practices be a good thing? Bad thing?
The production company wanting to bring "Extreme Parenting" to television is the same as who's behind "Dance Moms", a show I have only heard about. The only reason I've heard about it? The drama, the controversy. I'm not even sure I've seen a positive post regarding that show.
This just came across on my Facebook feed, the TIME article about this potential show
. I honestly don't know what to think. On one hand, it might be an informative show and might help bring some positive light on breastfeeding (and again, whatever else they showcase). But on the other, it all depends on how they "spin" in. This could end up being extremely negative for those who want breastfeeding more widely accepted. Will you be tuning in?
Would you participate in a television show like this? What would your "nontraditional" parenting practice be?
